bio dilution

Last winter was my first bio winter in KY. I found that my 100% bio gelled at about 35 degrees. I tried adding several brands of anti - gel and nothing seemed to help for straight bio. I mixed about 25% #2 diesel (kero might work better) and then added the anti - gel. Worked great, although our low temp was about 8 degrees F. To find the best mix, I made test batches (different mixes) in pint jars and set them in an unheated workshop and watched for gelling.
